Background

Medallion’s Wolfcamp Connector System consists of approximately 780 miles of 4-inch through 16-inch diameter crude oil gathering and transportation pipelines spanning six of the most prolific crude oil producing counties in the Permian Basin. The Wolfcamp Connector acts as an intrabasin header system connecting crude oil supply from multiple top-tier producer customers to multiple Permian Basin long-haul takeaway pipelines and local refineries.[1]

Expansion Background

There is a proposed expansion project called the Medallion Midland Basin Pipeline, which will enable the system to transport increased quantities of crude oil, produced near Medallion’s system, to downstream pipelines and markets.[4]

The expansion was expected to commence partial commercial operations in the third quarter of 2017 and full commercial operations in the fourth quarter of 2017. However, there were no development updates between 2017 and September 2019, when Medallion Midstream announced an open season for the expansion.[5]

Expansion Project Details

  • Owner: Medallion Midstream
  • Capacity: 95,000 barrels per day[2]

  • Status: Proposed
  • Start Year: 2017
